Energy, Confidence & Focus

Thursday, April 12th, 2012


“A lot of creativity has to do with energy, confidence and focus. These are the elements for making creative things. It’s probably the same thing whether you’re making a movie, whether you’re an entrepreneur doing business, whether you’re an artist, or whether you’re a gardener or a cook. These are all the same qualities that it takes.”
— Dale Chihuly

I’m not so sure how much confidence is required. It seems some creativity requires action (sometimes with shaky hands or a nervous gut) more than absolute confidence. However, I do agree that artfulness/ creativity is inside many realms, not just “the arts.”
In which area(s) are you being creative/ artful these days? I’m costuming, knitting, and strengthening bonds with loved ones. How about you?
